What is the current plan to shard EOS blockchain state? (Different from transaction parallel processing).

As far as I understand currently all block producers need to store everything. When the state grows larger will this be still feasible?


Phase 4 - Parallel Optimization Summer / Fall 2018

Please refer to the following roadmap. https://github.com/EOSIO/Documentation/blob/master/Roadmap.md

In the white paper, you can see that shard is already included when planning the block structure.

These are applied for feasibility. See the following link. https://www.investinblockchain.com/eosio-dawn/

  • Sparse Header Verification

  • I think the part with inter-blockchain communication in the article answers to this. Parallel optimization is only running transactions for the same block in parallal AFAIK. – Mikko Ohtamaa Jul 2 '18 at 10:38
